Review: Innisfree Apple Juicy Lip & Eye Remover

I've been using Skinfood Milk Shake Point Make-up Remover to remove my eye make-up when I wear glasses for the past few years. So basically just the concealer to cover my black circles and the black eyeliner. It's inexpensive, doesn't sting my eyes and removes it well. But now I'm on holidays (although it's ending in 2 days...sigh), I tend to put on Freshlook Illuminate Contact Lenses (because they're expiring soon...*grumble*) instead of glasses and put on more make-up on my eyes (basically just the Koji Dolly Wink Mascara). And I've started to notice that it takes a few more wipes to get all the mascara off my eyes, to the point where I have to tug around my eyelashes a bit and my eyelid gets a bit red and swollen the next day. So I did some research and decided to buy this when I got to Seoul.

Review: Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask Green Tea

This was a mask I received as part of a package from buying Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask (will do a review on that when I've used it a few more times). Since my plan to buy The Saem EGF + Snail + Syn-Ake mask while I was in Seoul didn't work out because it was replaced by a not so great newer version, I thought I might as well try out these free masks.

Review: The Saem Beaute de Royal Snail and Red Ginseng Intense Gel Mask Sheet

The Saem isn't one of the more popular brands like Skinfood, Missha, Etude House, or Innisfree, but I really fell in love with their EGF + Snail + Syn-Ake mask when I first went to Seoul a few years ago. So this time around I was all planning to haul like 60 pieces of that mask back when I realized that they've updated it to a new version! Into two new versions actually, they split the Snail and the Syn-Ake. They combined the snail with red ginseng as seen here, and the Syn-Ake with 24K Gold. Don't ask me where the EGF went lol. I asked the salesperson and they said, "This one for young people, that [Syn-Ake + 24K Gold mask] one for old people." Alright then. Since this mask was 5000won (5 USD!!!!) even in Seoul, I decided to just buy one and see how this new version compares.

Review: Etude House Collagen Eye Gel Patch

For those who follow me, if you're wondering why the background looks different, that's because I just came back from Seoul! Hehe. So I'm actually backtracking because I tried this eye mask while I was in Seoul, and this picture was taken in my hotel room. I really love The Face Shop Raspberry Lines & Lift Collagen Eye Patch from my first trip to Seoul. But despite its effectiveness in taking away all my fine lines and eye bags, it is quite pricey and the effect only lasts around a day. I've heard of the Etude House eye patch before so I made it one of my goals to try it out while I was in Seoul.

Review: Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner

This is actually a photo of all the free samples that came along with my order. I ordered the whole Benton Snail Bee High Content line from GMarket (the skin toner, essence, lotion, steam cream and mask pack). As you can see, I got two free samples of each product from their line, three masks, and also small jars of each product from the Snail Bee High Content line. Today I'll be reviewing the Aloe BHA Skin Toner.
